This is a UK based contract and as such, you are required to have the Right to Work in the UK. Evidence of your Right to Work will be checked prior to interview.
If you have successfully managed and led IT system implementations this is a tremendous opportunity to use your skills to save our planet. There has never been a more important time to join the fight for our world and as Finance Systems Programme Manager for the world's leading independent conservation organisation you can play a vital role in the battle for nature.
WWF UK has grown significantly in the last four years and as Finance Systems Programme Manager you will focus on implementing new finance systems to facilitate the financial management and reporting we now need and which is critical to the organisation's ability to ensure maximum impact from the use of funds. We will look to you to deliver new finance, procurement and grant management systems. You will take responsibility for the effective management of implementation projects from initial discovery through to Go Live and beyond.
You will ensure projects are delivered within budget, on time and that main requirements and objectives for each system are successfully met. You will also oversee the work of implementation partners, manage stakeholder communications and escalate large-scale issues if needed. You will manage resources and ensure users are adequately equipped and trained to optimise systems use too. Important will be the ability to solve project-related problems and to keep the organisation on track.
For this critical role, you must have significant experience of successfully managing and leading IT system implementations, preferably with finance systems implementation projects. Comfortable helping organisations and teams with transformation or change management projects, you will be used to managing multiple stakeholders and leading project teams. You will also possess strong interpersonal, communication and influencing skills. You will also be used to managing budgets and resources as well as overseeing supplier partners.
Experience of implementing MS Dynamics Business Central as a finance system would be an advantage as would a project management qualification.
